Mike Romo


Name: Mike Romo

Bio: Originally from San Francisco, Mike Romo now finds himself in Los Angeles, after spending a few years in New York acting in Off-Off (Off?) Broadway shows and learning what terms like "wind chill" and "85% humidity" meant. In addition to acting in commercials and film, Mike works in technology as a product manager (and is the host of his own corporate talk show--long story), focusing on Internet security. Though he grew up reading comics, Mike did not start reading them regularly until 2002 and has not looked back since, and has a complex relationship with the many long boxes taking over his closets. If pressed to talk about his favorite stories and creators, he would hem and haw a bit and then start throwing out names like Darwyn Cooke, Grant Morrisson, Paul Pope, Gabriel and Fabio Moon, Matt Kindt, Ed Brubaker and mention titles like Criminal, Richard Stark's Parker, 100%, All-Star Superman, Super Spy and quickly ask what you like. While he admits to being a big fan of characters like Superman, Daredevil, Batman Spider-Man and The Flash, he's more than eager to talk about non superhero books and finds himself picking more independent books than ever. A regular writer for iFanboy, he's been known to show up in a few of the podcasts and video shows as well. When not auditioning for TV and Film or writing for iFanboy, Mike works at SixFoot, a brand advisory in Marina Del Rey.

    July 9, 2013 1:15 pm Molander? I'd see that--they filmed the gas station place near my old work in LA — super awesome.
    July 4, 2013 3:55 pm yeah--that was bit embarrassing.
    July 4, 2013 3:54 pm Thanks for the nice comment on the writing, Jim! Other than, you know, rudimentary math, it was fun...like how you tied that time of history with our current integration of digital books.. have a great weekend! mike
    July 4, 2013 2:24 pm Hi MickeyRossi- Thanks for the tip. I am going to eBay immediately and will have to write another past-current review! thanks for reading! --mike
    July 4, 2013 1:30 am hey guys! I really appreciate the comments. For some reason...I dunno, this piece...clearly it began WAY too long ago. I love the typo--Conor emailed me, "We had to change the title because it's been 30 years, not 20... (sorry)" I guess I am there. Whatever--thanks for reading it. I actually have been thinking about writing it for a long time, but never thought to go on eBay. I am glad it piqued your interest -- or re-awoken memories long since forgotten. To be honest--it can be hard to encounter the comments, sometimes; you never know how things will go. But I am glad I checked in an appreciate you taking the time to write. -mike
    January 18, 2013 6:57 pm “Today will be a day long remembered. It has seen..." Well, no deaths, thank goodness, but wow--what a day. Congratulations to Ron and Paul. Thanks for this great letter, Ron, this is a huge deal in so many ways and I just know that both Image Comics and iFanboy will just get better throughout 2013 because of your contributions. Really looking forward to watching both of you shine! All the very best!!!
    January 10, 2013 12:19 am It's really kind of the most amazing news, when someone you know, like, and admire gets a chance to do something this big. Dan's going to do a great job. Can't wait to see what he does with this!
    December 4, 2012 6:16 pm This was one of two books that James Sime gave me over at Isotope Comics back in 2000 that got me back into comics. Really great to see it getting the recognition it deserves...though there really ought to be a sequel, great cast of characters.
    December 3, 2012 6:41 pm Not a good poster. Also, his face looks like he's noticed that one of the soldiers has farted.
    May 8, 2012 4:20 pm I think that if the X-Men movies had the team in yellow and purple, it would be really distracting and look silly. As it is, for me, I would have preferred to have had Cap were the uniform he wore in his film--I thought his current costume was just too bright. But yeah--my fear was that I thought it was going to look silly and it was not silly at all...
